Fancy Anya

Sorry this is posting late....I just got back from my son's play and noticed that blogger never published my post when I had it scheduled...

Today is an Inspirational Day for Claudia & Company and the Design Team has some wonderful projects to share with you.
For my card I used Fancy Anya from The Greeting Farm, colored part of her with copics and paper pieced the rest.  The designer papers are from the Lily Bee Picket Fence collection.  I made the lace flower from some vintage lace, placed a button in the center and finished it off with some ribbon.  A piece of ribbon down the side and some pearls complete the card.  I followed this weeks The Deconstructed Sketch.  

I had wanted a shimmery background for this card so I sprayed each panel of the card with some Baby's Breath Shimmerz Spritz that I picked up awhile back.  After letting it dry, I don't see any shimmer, just a few splatter marks on the cardstock...I'm hoping this spray will work better on canvas projects. Yep, even though I know nothing about "altering" a canvas, the kids and I decided to pick up a few canvas panels the other day...now I need to get daring and actually take one out of the bag and just have fun with it...after all, you can always paint over it ;)

Make sure you visit the rest of the Design Team to see their beautiful projects.

This weekend Tyler had one of his friends sleep over Saturday and then we went to the bowling alley for his birthday party on Sunday.  He had so much fun with his friends!  Last night two of his friends came over to make costumes for their class play and today I get to  see them in action ~ looking forward to it!   

Thanks for stopping and have a fantastic day!
